    She is not your deluded "snapshot" of what your enemies are thinking. She is a radical. "The Nation" is one of the most left wing magazines in the nation.

        The puppet master:

        'At President Trumpís speeches and rallies, Stephen Miller often can be found backstage, watching the teleprompter operator. As other White House staffers chat or look at their phones, Millerís attention remains glued to the controls.'

        'The energy and crowd-thrilling parts of Trumpís speeches usually happen during his impromptu diversions from the planned address. When Trump veers, colleagues say, Miller sometimes directs the operator to scroll higher or lower through the speech, so when the president is ready to pick it up again, he will hit those passages and make those points.'

        'Miller knows where he wants the president to go.'
        We are not now that strength which in old days
        Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
        Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
        To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

          Miller's evil twin:

          https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/newso...Ew?ocid=msn360

          'When President Donald Trumpís administration on Monday rolled out its so-called public-charge rule, which would allow the government to deny permanent residence to legal immigrants receiving public assistance, whispers of Stephen Miller were immediate.'


          'Miller, the 33-year-old Trump adviser, has created many of the White Houseís most controversial immigration policies over the past two and half years, and sure enough, when Acting Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli announced the plan, which is scheduled to take effect in 60 days, reports detailing Millerís handiwork were not far behind. It was as though Cuccinelli, in briefing journalists on the rule, had served as little more than a suited vessel for Millerís worldview. But to shift focus away from Cuccinelli is to ignore the very real convictions he brings to bear in this administration.'

          'A former senior White House official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to be frank, told me that one of the chief challenges in staffing this administration has been finding people whose fervor for hard-line immigration policies matches that of the president, and whose rťsumť includes even one line of government experience. Miller has thus found himself on an island at times in his attempt to execute his more extreme visions for the nationís immigration system. (A screaming match on the topic of, say, the proposed Mexican border wall is not unusual, said the source, who was party to one such exchange.)'

          'Enter Cuccinelli. The former Virginia attorney general joined the Trump administration in late May. His background includes trying to eliminate birthright citizenship, questioning whether Barack Obama was born in the United States, and proposing to make speaking Spanish on the job a fireable offense. Accordingly, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell advised the president against nominating Cuccinelli to any post that required Senate confirmation. To some, Cuccinelliís arrival meant that Miller had, at long last, found the consummate ideological ally. (A representative for Cuccinelli declined my request for a phone interview with the director.)'

          'Cuccinelli may well have been created in a Trump-branded petri dish. Heís spent decades advocating for far-right positions on a variety of social issues, and the 50-year-old practicing Catholic enjoys widespread support among conservative evangelicals. Cuccinelli used his 2013 loss to Terry McAuliffe in the Virginia gubernatorial race to reinvent himself as a conservative pundit, and for the past few years has offered a reliably pro-Trump perspective across cable networks (a bonus for anyone seeking this presidentís favor). As someone who built much of his popularity on polarizing immigration policies and incendiary rhetoric, Cuccinelli was as natural a choice as any for an administration hoping to make progress on the presidentís signature issue ahead of the 2020 election.'

            The Trump administration likes to target the children of illegal immigrants:

            https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/newsu...pa?ocid=msn360

            'Some top aides to President Donald Trump sought for months for a way to give states the power to block undocumented immigrant children from enrolling in public schools ó all part of the administrationís efforts to stem illegal crossings at the southern U.S. border.'

            'Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller had been a driving force behind the effort as early as 2017, pressing cabinet officials and members of the White House Domestic Policy Council repeatedly to devise a way to limit enrollment, according to several people familiar with the matter. The push was part of a menu of ideas on immigration that could be carried out without congressional approval.'

            'Ultimately, they abandoned the idea after being told repeatedly that any such effort ran afoul of a 1982 Supreme Court case guaranteeing access to public schools. But the consideration of denying hundreds of thousands of children access to education illustrates the breadth of the White Houseís push to crack down on undocumented immigrants.'

              'Rep. Gerry Connolly (D-VA) joins Alex Witt to discuss the Washington Post and the New York Timesí new articles on Stephen Miller's influence over President Trump's immigration policies. Hear why Connolly calls Miller an 'ideologue' who stokes fear in immigrant communities.'
